Great Plumbing Resources for Homeowners

It doesn't matter how long you have been a homeowner, there will always be new maintenance and repair challenges that pop up. Even the most comprehensive list of weekend chores cannot always ensure that all systems are functioning properly. One system in particular that gets overlooked far too often is the plumbing. Here at Roto-Rooter, we are dedicated to the customer experience and providing a level of care that is comprehensive and thorough on all levels. In an effort to help our customers get the services they need, our prices are extremely competitive and put us ahead of all other options in the industry. Not only that, but we have been around for a long time and have perfected repair techniques and an entire line of popular plumbing products.

 Free-flowing Drainage
To ensure that your drainage system is free of blockages at all times, there are a few things that need to be done. 

  1. Clean drains as often as you can. Make sure that drains are clean before and after using them so clogs do not ever have a chance to form.
  2. In bathroom and kitchen drains, use filters. Clean them out after each use so that solids don't accidentally slip by and fall into the system.
  3. Use powerful cleaners. One cleaner in particular that should be used often is Roto-Rooter drain cleaner. This fantastic product is a favorite with our customers simply because it works! While not harmful to the environment, Roto-Rooter drain cleaner brings the pain and knocks out forming clogs and blockages on contact.
  4. If you do not want to rely on powerful cleaners, one trick that will help prevent clogs is boiling water. Pour a large pot of boiling water down each drain once a week. The hot water will melt away gunk that is clinging to pipes and help maintain free-flowing drainage.

The toilet can be another source of plumbing headaches around your house. Do yourself a favor and remember the following tips to help avoid future problems: 

  • Stow a plunger beside each commode. This will come in handy if a sudden clog ever arises.
  • Only use approved cleaners.
  • Use a plumbing snake to remove impossible blockages.
